Plan a trip to Dubai

  • Book your ticket in advance (we booked ours 5 months in advance)
  • DO NOT FLY TURKISH! I REPEAT - DO NOT FLY TURKISH AIRLINES
  • Dubai does not tax but their items are far more expensive. So save up
  • I would not recommend shopping at the mall, you can find cheaper in America
  • Download Uber before you go. (you will spend a lot of money on uber and taxis so budget wisely)
  • The Gold Souk is very overwhelming. Make sure you negotiate all the prices because you could receive it for a low price.
  • You can not show skin at the Mosque in Abu Dhabi but they give you clothes for FREE
  • You can slightly wear whatever you want in Dubai, just don't be inappropriate
  • You can either book your excursions on Groupon or at your hotel
  • Dubai is like America but luxurious. They have a lot of American food available so don't think you are going to eat anything special.
  • IT IS VERY HOTTTTTTTTTTTT!
  • They use dollars or dirham (Dubai money) so either or, you will be fine. I would recommend changing half of your money to dirham to use for activities. 
  • CHEK OUT THE MAP BELOW FOR ALL THE PLACES I VISITED
